These recordings will not be retained by the offender, but will be handled per DOC 590.500 Legal Access for Offenders 1. If the video/audio recording of an offender court proceeding or ISRB Hearing is rejected by the mailroom when it enters the facility, the Superintendent/designee will administratively review the rejection. The video/audio recording will be retained at the facility pending review. DOC 590.500, VII. Viewing of Court/ISRB Videotapes A. Occasionally it is necessary to allow offenders to view videotapes of their court proceedings or ISRB Hearings. The Superintendent/designee will retain and store any incoming court/ISRB videotapes.
